A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

What Would Jesus Do?



Meth, apparently.

You've got the megachurch Bush-luvin' pastor who scores drugs.

You've got the mayor of Topeka having to mail out letters apologizing for godhatesfags dot com's (and godhatesamerica dot com's) loony Pastor Fred Phelps' coming out to protest at soldiers' funerals.

There's been bribery, more sex, lying ...

Boy, these family-values types are just right out there livin' large with the lord, ain't they?

Mary Cheney, Jack Haggard, Mark Foley ... all strident GOP campaigners against gay marriage. All gay or bi. All pried out of the closet by public scandal (or in Mary's case by her daddy's loathing for queers).

Gay secretaries in the Fatherland Insanity department, gay escorts posing as reporters for the White House PR machine ... The list goes on and on.

What is this weird self-loathing these poor people experience? What drives them to embrace the party which denies them the constitutional right to "the pursuit of happiness"?

Y'know, Hitler liked his men tall and clean-cut too, and apparently Eva Braun died a virgin. Strongly suggests something about which side of Gay Street he strolled. But he hated homos so much that he sent them to concentration camps.

Not that that should inspire any comparisons to the modern behaviour of the Republican Guard, surely.

Thank the FSM I live in a country where fags can marry. Sure Harper keeps planning to "revisit the issue". But what's he gonna do? It's the law, and most MP's, including his, don't want it "revisited".

Not, you understand, that I'm letting my guard down.

Isn't it great? Just like the British Tories, going down in flames, a whiff of brimstone in the air.

George magazine interviewed hookers at the Republican and Democratic conventions, and they said that they never made any money from Democrats: they'd all just do each other for free. But they didn't like working for Republicans...too kinky.

In fairness to the pansy padre, nobody says he TOOK the drugs, he just bought them.

Uh, actually, the man who's accusing him said specifically that the pastor took meth to "enhance the experience".

"Jones claimed that Haggard, 50, paid him to have sex nearly every month over three years. He said he advertised himself as an escort on the Internet and was contacted by a man who called himself Art, who snorted methamphetamine before their sexual encounters to heighten his experience."

From sfgate.com

Haggard's middle name, by the way, is Arthur.

"He's my masseur and meth dealer, but not my gay lover!"

I bet for Haggart, this whole thing is actually a relief. It can't be easy living double lives like those. By day Bible-thumping hate monger, by night meth-snorting barebacker.
...

Harper would repeal our same-sex marriage laws if he had half the chance... luckily though, like you said, his own party doesn't even support it.

We need a party who will stand up for marijuana decriminalisation (and eventual legalisation), Kyoto and trade. Harper is a pansy and needs to go.

PS. sfgate.com... Arthur! Art! Gold!

Harper is a Tory, and that's reason enough to get him out of office as far as I'm concerned.

Did you see the Haggard anti-gay rant from the Jesus Camp movie is up at YouTube now. Loverly.

That video doesn't show Haggard bashing anyone. All he says is that what he chooses to believe about gays is "written in the bible".

The blackmail bit's interesting, though.

Here's an interesting question for Pastor Ted (as distinct from the far more collegiate and entertaining Father Ted).

Leviticus--the chapter these loverly people usually cite as proving that an infinitely just and loving god wants them to hate homos--states:

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them"

Where does it say anything about lesbians?

So pulling another man's pork is bad news but gobbling clams is just fine?

That sounds extraordinarily unfair, but as it's in Leviticus how can we oppose it?
